Feed-In Tariffs - Boosting Energy for our Future: A guide to one of the world's best environmental policies

Feed-In Tariffs - Boosting Energy for our Future: A guide to one of the world's best environmental policies

Date: May 2007
Creator: Rohde, Anja
Description: This brochure explains Feed-In Tariff (FIT) laws. The big challenge for the renewable energy industry has been to make the cost of clean energy competitive with heavily-subsidized conventional energy. Householders or energy companies who want to install wind turbines or solar panels are faced with lengthy pay-back times and are forced to make a choice based on ethics rather than economics. The Feed-In Tariff (FIT) has proven to be the most effective policy instrument in overcoming these barriers. This simple, low-cost mechanism has turned several European countries into world leaders in the renewables sector.

Heading for 100 % renewable urban transport: Policy recommendations

Heading for 100 % renewable urban transport: Policy recommendations

Date: unknown
Creator: Gust, Iris & Meusel, Titus
Description: The brochure promotes urban transportation policy to increase the use of renewable energy to 100%. Seen globally, transport is one of the main sources of greenhouse gas emissions. Yet fossil fuels are becoming scarce, will become increasingly expensive and will eventually stop being viable as transport fuels. Before this happens, climate change will have begun to have a serious impact on human lives. The authors believe that it is crucial to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy as soon as possible, especially in the transport sector. Making urban transport independent of fossil fuel is a great challenge, but the authors cite growing evidence that it can be achieved.
